tonight, of course, was the first lady michelle obama. the democrats' not so secret weapon. >> barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grand kids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we're from or what we look like or who we love. >> to break down michelle obama's speech, john king and gloria borger. apologizing for the heat in here. >> you've attracted quite a crowd. >> it's the sizzling energy bouncing off the place. i had the castro brothers who were very dynamic and very impressive i thought tonight. michelle obama i thought knocked it out of the park as you americans would say. gloria, what did you think? >> yeah. i thought she did. if you were sort of a couch potato democrat, you're sitting at home and not sure you really like the president anymore and you don't have the same passion for him, she was talking to you tonight. and she said to you, well, if people can go serve oversea

, tonight, and michelle obama, what is the big test for michelle obama? we know she's practiced, she's a practiced speaker, she's been on the national stage, unlike ann romney, who hit it out of the park with her first effort, really, using teleprompters and all the attention. what is the tactical political effect of michelle obama? >> i think michelle made her debut four years ago in what was an off the chart speech. i think she, because of her closeness obviously with the president and her viewpoint, she can really tell the story of his values, his upbringing, what he believes, and what he wants to do yet for this country. i think she is going to be a powerful and passionate advocate for the president tonight and will give a great speech. >> unlike mitt romney, who needed to have the biography filled in and ann romney was trying to explain just who is this man who has been described variously as robotic and not warm and cuddly to the outside world, at least, president obama has a very high popularity quotient but his big gap is on answering the republican bumper stickers, which is

in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right

[applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga

just arrived air force one and we told by the aides he is pleased with what first lady michelle obama did last night. they are very disappointed in the campaign and in the white house, that they have to move the venue from the outdoor stadium, holding 65,000 to about 20,000 at the time-warner center. a local meteorologist tweeted it could be clear on thursday, the republican national convention suggested maybe it was a lack of enthusiasm they could not fill the stadium. that's what really led the democrats, not the weather concerns, to move the venue. i spoke to the deputy campaign manager, and she said that is nonsense. >> 65,000 people that were scheduled to come tomorrow night probably disagree with that and are pretty disappointed they cannot come to see the president. we are disappointed, too. but the chance of severe weather, the chance of putting the people at risk was too high and we could not risk it. >>reporter: officials tell us they had a waiting list beyond the 65,000 people of up to 19,000 or 20,000 that wanted to get in the stadium. they say they would have filled it an
